Too Young To March

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2005

The March of the Living is considered beyond scrutiny. But when it suggests that Israel is the only answer to the horror of the Shoah, it cheapens the gravity of what happened in Auschwitz and elsewhere during those dark days. To suggest that the central lesson to be kept alive through the generations is suspicion is a lesson that is readily derived from the dreadful experience. But it is a wretched lesson nonetheless.
